I am trying to install my Pro 5.0 right now, and the stick for the shifter will not go onto the pro 5.0. I have a stock shifter and I have heard that it will work with this shifter, why is this not?!

The metal hanger around the stock stick is too skinny to fit around the pro 5.0 handle! Has anyone else had this problem?! How do i get around this?>!

Did you buy a new Pro 5.0, or just get part of it? Are you trying to mix and match OEM parts with it... a little more info and you will get lots of help :usa:

I bought a used (1000 miles) pro 5.0. It did not come with a stick.

I am trying to use the non-hurst shifter that came on the 98 Z28.

Not really sure that, that will work. Look to see if someone is selling their Pro 5.0 stick. Or you may have to buy a LSS..

Good luck..

i would post up in the wanted forum that you are looking for a pro 5.0 stick, or just buy a LSS or JSS (lou's short stick, Jarrod's short stick)

The stock stick will not fit on the Pro 5.0. You will need the pro 5.0 stick or like BlueSix said get a short stick made for the Pro 5.0

I have figured that out now :(

The worst part was I raced a rice burner last night after I put the car back together with the stock shifter (a stupid VW with a body kit and all the bolt-ons, prob fast for a VW non-turbo) and I missed third gear :(

He knows I missed the gear, but still, he will tell all his friends how slow my Camaro is :eyes:
